21: The Giver

The Giver

In this episode of Reading the Newberys, we discuss the winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal, The Giver by Lois Lowry. This is the first book we were able to read along with our book club on Facebook, and we had some good conversations about this book with some of our listeners during the past month! We even include some of your thoughts in our discussion on the podcast! So grab some cucumbers and dark chocolate and listen along as we discuss this dystopian children’s book!
